I got a call from a reported from the Canadian Press (AP-ish news, eh?) who asked me a bunch of questions about Gates's book and about Afghanistan. I was late for class and had someone in my office, chatting about stuff, so I am not sure I gave the best answers I could. But the story is pretty good for one of those where I had not yet read the book. Check it out.
But it definitely fits a long tradition here at the Spew, distinguishing between books I have read and books I have read myself. Gates's memoir is in the former category, and I will get to it eventually.
Best part is that it mentions the new book. Alas, it does not mention that the book is co-authored. Sorry, Dave.
